Warner had to be physically restrained by teammates, including Paine, at tea on day four of the first Test after raging at comments allegedly made about his wife by de Kock.

Australia and South Africa have until Thursday morning AEDT to officially respond to the reports, with both having the option to appeal.

The sledging war between David Warner and Quinton de Kock has reached the next level, with the South African batsman's sister weighing into the saga via social media.

Warner was hit with a level-two charge of bringing the game into disrepute, and de Kock a level one, under the players' code of conduct. Very proud countries, both sides.

Former spinner Warne tweeted: "Chat, banter, sledging has always been apart of any series between SA & Oz". It's the way we play our cricket against them. "If you are saying something you've got to take it and that's the opinion of Quinton", he said.

It is alleged that De Kock made utterances about Warner's spouse, Candice, which prompted an emotional response by Warner as the players made their way into their respective changing rooms.

Australian coach Darren Lehmann expects the coaches and captains of both teams to "chat" before the second Test against South Africa starting in Port Elizabeth on Friday after a bad-tempered start to the series.
